Bradley's Spanish Bar


Is it the all-vinyl jukebox? Is it the tatty velvet furniture? Is it old habits dying hard? Whatever the reason, London still loves Bradley’s, a two-floor cornucopia of straw-donkey-level Spanish tack just off the wrong end of Oxford Street.

A hotch-potch of local workers, weary shoppers and amorous foreign-exchange students fills the cramped two-floor space, enraging passing taxi drivers as they spill on to the narrow street outside.

All are happy to pay slightly over the odds for draught Cruzcampo, San Miguel and Budvar, the highlights of a fairly limited drinks selection that’s more about quantity than quality.

By contrast, no one’s exactly happy to use the toilets, but their poor condition is generally seen as a price worth paying.

Absolutely cracking little bar just off Oxford Street, with ancient decor and a vinyl jukebox. Predominantly Spanish clientele as the name suggests, but it reminds me more than anything of some of the little pubs you find in Dublin or Belfast. Not the best beer selection (Budvar's the best on offer), though you wouldn't expect it in a place like this.


Brilliant quirky place... great antidote to the chain pubs and bars that are everywhere now!
